What Heung-min Son said to Harry Kane after scoring vs Burnley was brilliant
Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are the deadliest duo in world football right now.
As Givemesport reports, The two Tottenham strikers are in the form of their lives and the pair combined once again away at Burnley last night to secure a 1-0 win for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Kane’s brilliant headed pass from a corner fell perfectly into Son’s path and the South Korean forward duly guided the ball past Nick Pope from close range.
It was a goal that summed up the telepathic understanding between the two superstars and they’ve now combined for a total of 29 goals in the English top-flight.
Only Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba (36 goals) have ever mustered more as a double act in Premier League history.

It was a very well-worked goal by the Spurs duo and Son’s reaction seconds after scoring was just brilliant, as he had to quickly double-check that it was Kane who got the assist.
Following conformation from the England captain, the South Korean proceeded to look as happy a kid on Christmas Day before embracing his partner-in-crime.
“Did you get the assist”

Yep, it was that man again and Kane now has eight assists to his name in the Premier League this season after just six games.
To put that figure into context, no player in Europe’s top five leagues has recorded more assists after the opening six games of a season in the past 10 years.
Truly astonishing numbers from Tottenham’s talisman and after the game, Kane tried to explain the reasons behind his outrageous creative output in 2020/21.
“I’m dropping a bit deeper this season, the wide players have been running in behind and that allows me to get some space and get my head up,” Kane told Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher in the Monday Night Football studio.
“Maybe in recent years we haven’t quite been doing that.”
It appears Mourinho is working his magic in north London…
